from the unitees nations. 'back in at the late '8s, the wise people at the u.n. decided it would be kind of useful to have some simple numerical infection that gave you one score, say you were interested in invest your money in different parts of the world. it would help to give you one number which tells you how well the different governments in the world are doing creating situations to help citizens realize their potential. so the u.n. has a human development index. so they wanted a number for each country. the economyis are smart guys, and this -- you can't measure. the only thing you can do is narrow it down. and they said what we need to do is narrow down human development to the smallest possible number of traits that cover more or less what the u.n. means talking about human development in this case the index, three traits were more or less covered. and it's not perfect but it is a snapshot. the traits they came up with, if they measure life expectancy at birth. levels education. and real wages. lifetime earnings. and these three trait -- this doesn't cover everything we

your favorite conspiracy theory is, and on facebook sandra fournier wrote the u.n. is coming to take your guns. come on, sandra, that is a crazy fringe conspiracy perpetuated by only a few disturbed gun nuts and most of the republican party leadership and they've only been doing it because of chemical trails after our government staged 9/11. if you have any comments tweet us at booth ctv or john fugelsang or use a "viewpoint" on facebook. if you're one of those people who looks around and thinks boy everyone in this country is crazy, you may be right. 28% of americans believe there is a secretive power conspiring to world the world. one in four people buy into the new world order conspiracy. not crazy enough for you? how about this one. according to the same poll, 13% of voters believe that problem is the antichrist. not that he might be, but he is. a belief also held by 5% of those who actually voted for him. sure others countries beat us in education, healthcare and income equality but when it comes to conspiracy theory we're number one. i am joined by a fun panel writer and comedi

to be an eyewitness to every senator's vote on the ratification on the u.n. convention on the rights of people with disabilities. senate ratification of this thing probably should have been a slam-dunk. it was expected to be when they started getting atrointd in the first place. the treaty was modelled after our own americans with disability act. it was to take that advance we pioneered in this country in our own law and hold it up as an aspirational model for the rest of the world. since we already have the american with disabilities act in this country, this would be a feel good thing for us that would make a real difference around the world in terms of people with disabilities being treated with dignity. this was kind of a slam-dunk, you'd think. then the current crop of republicans occupying bob dole's old place in the senate decided this actually was a communist conspiracy to destroy parenting. they said it was a pandora's box, a un takeover of the basic unit of the family, a conspiracy for one world government! and lo and behold senate republicans junked the treaty. so the world endorses

or in conjunction with other nations or should we wait for u.n. resolutions to that effect? >> well, we don't need a u.n. resolution, i don't think. but we do need other nations to be with us, including arab nations. the arab nations did have a meeting recently and it was the opposition that was seated there, not syria. so that we know there is a lot of support inside the arab world to take on assad. and so we would have the support of many, many other countries even if we couldn't get anything through the u.n. because of russia. >> rose: so in other words, russia has a veto in the security council. so even though you couldn't get something through the security council because of a veto by russia or china, you would considering argue that you don't need the united nations or a united nations resolution, what you need is action to take out a syrian anti-aircraft embankments and other kinds of military hardware there could impede their shooting down american or nato or other airplanes. >> well, you don't need the u.n. here providing you have the arab world and a lot of nato countries supporting turk
